 I don't think Congress has ever required Americans to buy a product or service, such as health insurance, under penalty of law, I doubt Congress has the power to do that. Under this bill, if an American chooses not to buy minimal essential health coverage, he or she will face rapidly increasing taxes - up to $750 or 2 percent of taxable income, whichever is greater, by the year 2016.
